Honganji temples, Kyoto, Japan

20 October 2017

Went to Kyoto to present a seminar at the Bioinformatics Center of Kyoto University, and stayed one night to have enough time in the morning to visit some temples. Unfortunately the weather was rather depressing, but here are some impressions anyway...

With the Shinkansen from Tokyo to Kyoto. Them bullet trains are something!

That night I stayed in a ryokan, a traditional japanese inn.

Of course this comes with the room...

The next morning, in gray and drizzly weather, I walked around for a couple of hours to visit some temples. First the Higashi-honganji temple.

Then the Nishi-honganji temple.
